Porter comments, "Composing the original music for Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad has been an incredible experience, and I've had the pleasure of reliving it while creating this compilation. I've selected a few pieces of music I wrote for each season that seemed to resonate the strongest. Some are personal favorites, others are cues I'm often asked about, and most correspond to pivotal moments in the show."
"Dave is a very gifted composer and his unique approach to scoringutilizing the dobro, the Japanese koto and other non-traditional instrumentscreates a perfect backdrop for the Breaking Bad series. We're thrilled to be able to finally offer fans of the show a collection of hand-picked, score tracks from all five seasons," says Madison Gate Records executive Shelly Bunge.
